THE MUST-ATTEND UTILITY EVENT FOR 2018
Date: 19-20 April 2018
Location: Pullman Hotel, Albert Park, Melbourne
Brought to you by Utility Magazine, Digital Utilities is the premier event for anyone working with or for utilities, and grappling with the momentous impacts digital technologies are having on the industry.
The digitisation of utilities is the greatest challenge currently facing the sector, with much to do to modernise existing networks, work practices and ways of interacting with customers.
But it’s also an area of great excitement and opportunity for those utilities willing to be brave, and step boldly into a new paradigm.
At Digital Utilities 2018, delegates will hear from the industry’s leaders – those who are taking the action required to turn their organisations into modern, dynamic utilities, equipped to provide customers with the services they expect, at the times they demand and at a price they are prepared to pay.
The utilities sector hasn’t seen a shift this monumental in more than 100 years. The best way to ensure your organisation moves with the times, and establishes itself as a utility the modern consumer wants to do business with, is to learn from the best at Digital Utilities 2018.
What can you expect at Digital Utilities 2018?
The two-day conference will provide delegates with the tools they need to use digital technologies to accelerate and transform their organisations.
The expert speaker lineup will feature Managing Directors, Chief Information Officers and Heads of Digital at Australia’s major water and energy utilities, as well as digitisation experts and government representatives.
Day One will feature presentations on digital innovations, challenges, and advice to move your organisation to the digital age.
Day Two will be split into four streams:
- Using digital technologies to improve customer relationships
- The role of renewables in our digital future
- Achieving cyber security resilience in a digital environment
- Modernising the network for the digital age
Highlights of the conference include:
Multiple speed networking sessions where delegates are guaranteed introductions to colleagues from your industry. These formal sessions are in addition to the multiple opportunities to connect with other attendees during the networking lunches and breaks.
Exhibitors from digital and technology related companies showcasing the latest innovations in the sector. Find out about new and emerging technologies and how to integrate digital solutions within your organisation.
The Digital Utility Awards 2018 will be presented at a gala dinner on 19 April, as part of Digital Utilities 2018, and will be attended by senior leaders and experts from within the utility community.

How is Digital Utilities relevant to your organisation?
An effective digital strategy can revolutionise all areas of the power utility business. It’s at the heart of the energy transformation challenge.
Data is a key asset of the utility of the future, and it is vital for optimising asset management, improving network operations and improving investments.
Another requirement of the “digital utility” is flexibility – modern utilities need to have the flexibility to provide a service to customers when they want it, and how they want it, with the emergence of new business models that are independent of providing electrons.
Digital Utilities provides a unique opportunity to engage with those ahead of the pack in the digital transformation race, offering invaluable insights into how utilities can use digital technologies to improve business efficiencies and performance, and be fearless in the face of disruptive innovation.
